A round of applause for the Conscious Companies Awards finalists

CFO South Africa recently published an article applauding the Conscious Companies Awards 2019 finalists. You can read the full article on the CFO website here.

The Conscious Companies Awards, which takes place in May, celebrates visionary leaders and organisations who heed the call to create evolutionary business practices such as authenticity, higher sense of purpose, creativity, trust, compassion, care, transparency and good governance aligned to productivity and profit.

The finalists for the 2019 Awards in the private, listed companies category are:

  • MIP Holdings
  • The Unlimited
  • BNP Paribas
  • LifeSense
  • Turner & Townsend
  • Tushiyah Advisory Services

Finalists in the NGOs, NPOs and NPCs categories are:

  • Harambee
  • Winnie Mabaso Foundation
  • Business Engage
  • Moving into Dance

CEO of Conscious Companies and founder of Conscious Leadership Academy Brenda Kali:

“The age of consciousness has arrived for leaders to take responsibility and lead with decisive courage and authentic, ethical resolve. It is a privilege to be in a position of power to influence and better the lives of those around you. Unless we do the right thing, the ‘what’s in it for me’ pervasive culture will continue to define our leadership. The annual Conscious Companies Awards is a litmus test of conscious, ethical and purposeful leaders and their companies in the country.”

Companies were posed with fundamental questions like,

  • Why does this business exist?
  • How can we create more value for all of our stakeholders?
  • How can we create a workplace of meaning, productivity and joy?
  • How can we transform and uplift society?
  • How can we serve?

CEO of Primeserv, partner of the Conscious Companies Awards, Merrick Abel says:

“The partnership with Conscious Companies is notable as our ethos has always been in people, productivity and performance and the Conscious Companies position of people, planet, profit and purpose in service of all stakeholders has great synergy with the company. Our differentiator is in our value creation model, in our leadership and operating culture.”
